Whatever opportunity you’re interested in, working at OTR is a hugely rewarding experience, and we invest heavily in the progression of all our staff and volunteers.

All appointments at OTR are made subject to a DBS check.

Please note that a condition of any job offer or placement here at OTR is a willingness to work with difference. Whatever your role or professional background, you will be expected to work across different categories of ethnicity, race, social class, disability, faith, gender and sexual diversity. You will also need to be willing to work across our entire age range – from 11-25 and to engage with the full diversity of issues that young people can and do bring to OTR.

We take this bit seriously, so our promise to you is that we will encourage, support and develop your capability in working trans-culturally and with difference while you are with us.

Please find below a list of our current vacancies. If you can't find what you're looking for at this time but would like to leave your details and/or sign up to be alerted to potentially suitable opportunities when posted, then you can do so on our Register Interest page.

We offer voluntary opportunities for both qualified and student practitioners to offer 1:1 work with young people. You can expect to play a full part in the OTR experience for young people so you will need to be able to commit to at least five hours per week.

Please note, this is a competitive process and you will at least need to be in the third/final year of a recognised professional qualification. Experience working directly with young people in a related capacity is also an advantage. We provide regular in-house multi-disciplinary group supervision as well as training and expenses.

We also accommodate other placement roles, including Health and Social Care students, Psychology students and Youth Workers. Please let us what you are studying, the hours per week you need to volunteer for your placement, and any other requirements. 

Here at OTR we really do embrace diversity, so we’re less interested in your theoretical orientation than your ability to build relationships with young people. All our volunteers work within our city centre service, which runs six days a week and offers brief interventions.

You can apply at any time, just drop us a line at with a note on your background, availability, and attach your CV. Once we receive your application we’ll be in touch when vacancies arise that match your availability to arrange an interview with one of the team.

Work Experience

At the moment, we do not have the resource to take on work experience placements. We do however recognise the value of work experience and would encourage anyone interested in OTR to look at our volunteering and Peer Navigator opportunities as an exciting addition to a CV.
